About this project

Show you're a Nintendo fan by wearing these detailed enamel pins! They can go anywhere, but best on jean jackets, hats and bags. There are three designs. 

About Us:

I'm a big Nintendo fan and I also like collecting enamel pins. I've seen similar designs on the web, but some of the links don't work or are completely sold out. So I want to create a pack on my own that's new, cleaner, and better.  

These were my favorite pieces of Nintendo hardware growing up. I loved that N64 Controller while playing 007:Golden Eye. 

I have a friend who started a pin company (www.thepinselection.com), and he's agreed to help me create the pins if I can get enough demand. So please help! 

Timeline :  

After funding has been met: 
Week 1: Confirming design and Prototypes  
Week 2-3: Pin Production   
Week 4 onward: Shipping to us then YOU!

Pins:  

THESE WILL NOT BE THE FINAL DESIGNS. The final designs will be better, but I do not want to pay for the design work until I have the backing. Also, none of the pins will have the words "Nintendo" as I don't want to get in trouble with them. 

I'll use a black rubber backing on all these because I think that looks the best.

Cross-Collaboration and Support: 

Lastly, we want to send a shout out to our cross-collaborators, Jeff and his team for their awesome book, titled "NES Oddities & the Homebrew Revolution: Games You Haven't Played" - the book covers games from the Nintendo Entertainment System that weren't normally licensed and released for the original 8-Bit NES. 

Here's the link:

Risks and challenges

This is my first time getting into enamel pins, and my first ever kickstarter campaign.

I'm working with my friend who owns a pin company called pinselection, that'll handle most of the design, manufacturing and packaging. www.thepinselection.com

Hopefully, everything goes well in production, but if something does go wrong, I will make sure to keep backers updated.
